custom fit guide

RIDE88 QR3 Racks have options to fit in just about any truck bed. Follow these 3 simple steps get the best fitting system for your truck.

Step 1

Locate your cargo mounting holes. Most trucks will have them close behind the cab (see photo). If you have oblong holes like on Chevy and Ram trucks our racks will fit. The oversized pressure plates on both ends of the crossbar will press around the hole and provide firm stability.

NO HOLES?

Step 2

Measure from one side of the bed to the other right at the mounting hole location (see photo). Write down the measurement.

Step 3

Determine which QR3 KIT will fit your truck:

 

Pro Tip: Order the longest option that will fit your bed width.

If you accidentally order a little too long it's OK, you can cut off some length on the non adjusting end of the crossbar. Lowes and other hardware stores can do this for you in the pipe department, usually at no charge.

U-track option

U-TRACK KIT

This system requires holes in the front wall of your truck for mounting the U-Track. Some trucks like Chevy and GMC already have holes. Others will require drilling 3 small 3/8" holes. This is a great rack solution that adds a useful utility track system your vehicle as well.

LOWer COST OPTION

The Cinch Rack is a  complete rack system including a heavy duty Telescopic Crossbar, Tie Downs and a 20' strap for securing the rear of your bikes. This is a lower cost solution for securing bikes in a truck bed without removing the wheels.

If you have a soft tonneau (bed cover) the QR3 Racks will fit tight under it. Fold racks down out of the way at the pull of a spring loaded pin. Close your cover and you are all set! When ready to use the rack simply lift the arm upward and it "snaps" back in position. Simple. 

If you have a hard folding or other style cover like the Bak Revolver or Truxedo Sentry you may need to locate your rack a little further back from the bed wall. Contact us at info@ride88.com for mounting options that will fit your truck.
